Well, I REALLY am hoping it's a T-33A as well...however, I'm not too encouraged by some performance data I looked up for the T-33. In the clip, they talk about "The airplane trimmed for 90kts at 18,000 feet". So...I looked in an abbreviated T-33A Flight Operating Instructions book I own, and it appears that at a weight of 10,000 pounds (which is unlikely, since it affords only 50 gallons of fuel....putting you on fumes in a T-33), the flap and gear down stall speed is 95 knots IAS.

So as much as it kills me to say it, I think the T-33 is unlikely for this airplane. The T-37's near-stall performance is much more within this range...(stalls at around 75 kts.).

However, a T-37 seems unlikely to me as well.

If it IS a T-33A, PLEASE give us the option of configuring it with a travel pod! (Naturally...)

De Havilland vampire anyone ?

There are still quite a few flying today and I think about 8 airworthy example in the US. Many Marks to choose from and many airforces operated them (at least 30+ ) to give enough material for the repainters.

Sticking with de Havilland, how about a Mosquito for a twin warbird. Again enough Marks were built to choose from and create optional load outs.

In my youth I cycled many times to the de Havilland museum at Salisbury Hall to look at these fine aircraft

I think it's the Beech-18.

@Jan Kees - if you work it up for us in that paint, I'll be happy to take it out for a spin.

Do my peepers deceive me, or is that a Ju-88 in USAAF markings?

Your peepers speak truth. Note the enormous U.S. flag on the tail, used only for captured equipment - wouldn't want any misunderstandings...

There's also one on the top of the fuselage, and I'm guessing one on the bottom as well.

Right - missed the fuselage one.

Can't be too careful.
